Sindhu, Srikanth thrashes opponents at China Open


Star Indian shuttlers P.V Sindhu and Kidambi Srikanth advanced to the next round, defeating their opponents in the China Open here on Thursday.

It was a cakewalk for World No. 2 Sindhu as she won her women's singles tie against Thailand's Busanan Ongbamrungphan 21-12, 21-15 in straight games.

Srikanth beat Indonesia's Tommy Sugiarto 10-21, 21-9, 21-9 in a match which lasted 45 minutes.

Sindhu had no problems in outplaying her opponent. Her swift court movements and smashes saw her overpowering Ongbamrungphan in just 37 minutes of play while Srikanth had to struggle to register a come-from-behind victory.

Third seed Sindhu will face eighth seed He Bingjiao of China while fifth seed Srikanth will face fourth seed Chou Tien Chen of Chinese Taipei in the next round.

Later in the day, Satwiksairaj Rankireddy and Chirag Shetty will face Wahyu Nayaka Arya Pangkaryanira and Ade Yusuf Santoso of Indonesia in a men's double match.
